And… We’re Back

My knitting is all about the WIP’s still and most look rather the same as last time, so no pictures. I do have my Ravellenics medals:

Hoping your week is going well. Cheers!

Make It Monday

And what a weekend it was!

Clue Six of the Peter Pan Mystey KAL arrived bright and early Friday morning. I had time to work the colour transition on one side of the shawl before heading off to work. This next-to-last clue had us cast off each side and so, It looks like the seventh and final clue will have us pick up the outer edges for a border and then the finishing. Have loved this KAL and in particular, the Unique Sheep’s gradience colours.

Here’s last week’s progress (there are more photos on my Flickr):

(No idea why this photo is rotated – it’s correct in my media files and defies my two correction attempts! Clicking the photo will take you to its home on Flickr and spare your neck a crink)

I finished up my Snow Day mitts (that match the hat mentioned in a previous post) and a crochet scarf for the Ravelry Rallenics:

And… Last not least, I cast off my Hanging Garden Stole. It qualified for the “WIP Dancing” event of Ravellenics, having started before the official cast on date. Finished up Friday evening:

Hope yours was great too. Cheers!

Game On!

I’m an Olympics Wannabe. I’m really not all that interested, not enough to go buy a television to watch but.. Go Canada!!

Hot Canadian Olympians

Now, if knitting ever becomes an Olympic sport, you can be sure I’ll be a contender!

I am participating in the Ravelry “Ravellenics” as part of Team Wabi Sabi and I cast on Friday evening for the Hat Halfpipe – had to miss the opening ceremonies official cast on ’cause they frown on stopping the work for knitting. If you can imagine…

Go Team!

Go Team!

I’m using some recycled Dream In Colour Classy in the “Dusky Aurora” colourway. Much of it is still in a Chic Knits hoodie that I can’t remember where the heck I left off! I’m thinking that these hat and fingerless glove sets will be perfect for the shop. There’s still a lot of cold weather left here.

So, is anyone else participating in the Ravelry Revels? What team are you on?

Oh… And Monday? I still don’t like you!

ETA: I finished the hat Sunday afternoon and cast on for the matching fingerless gloves 🙂
